Home to Delphi

My author visit to Delphi, Indiana on Monday, April 7
I spoke to three groups of 100+ students at Delphi Middle/High School.

When public librarian Lauren and middle school librarian Bernadette invited me to visit their students a Delphi, Indiana, I thought it would be kind of a cool thing. When I got there Monday, I was delighted to find such a welcoming crowd. One girl said “Hi, Chris Everheart!” when I walked in the door.

Full disclosure: I hadn’t done my homework and didn’t know that their school mascot is The Oracles! What could be better than bringing a thriller story about a 3,000-year-old conspiracy involving teenagers and the Oracle at Delphi to a group of kids living in Delphi, Indiana?

After an afternoon of school visits, the public library put on an event with a group of kids who’d all read the book and made trailer videos. That was a blast! In thanks, I read the entire short story The Shadow of Delphi: A Short Delphi Prequel. (I think they liked it.)

I have to admit that I was a little overcome at one point. These kids had put a lot of attention on the Delphi books I and II – and are hollering for number III – and I felt like I was bringing this project home. That was really special.

I only hope I gave the kids at Delphi as much as they gave me.


Now, here’s the cheese on this Brain Burger.

3 reasons to visit Delphi, Indiana instead of Delphi, Greece:

  1. You don’t have to bring a gold statue to get into town.
  2. A Hyundai and a GPS can get you there – and back home.
  3. Instead of a scary oracle in the Adyton, there’s a Dairy Queen on Main Street!
